Rumor Has it: Anna Wintour Is Stepping Down This Summer As Editor-in-Chief
Ann Wintour has been the editor-in-chief of Vogue since 1988, thats exactly 30 years ago. Talk about commitment! She is named the heavyweight in the fashion world for decades. But now rumors are swirling that Wintour may be on her way out. Page Six published a story Monday evening claiming that a number of sources are saying Wintour will leave her post following her daughter’s wedding this summer.
In 2013, she was also appointed as the Condé Nast’s artistic director thus leaving two spaces that need to be filled in the event of her exit. A spokesperson from Conde Nast says, “emphatically deny these rumors,” all signs are leading to her departure.
Some believe she will return home to lead the British Fashion Council after appearing in front row seats with Queen Elizabeth II. Insiders have already been suggesting replacements for the EIC role including British Vogue‘s Edward Enninful. This will be a major change at the New York-based publishing house that recently cut its workforce by two-percent and discontinued the print edition of Teen Vogue.
